Hi Sueboo, the secret is to shop around and find the best Travel Agent as in my experience some seem to have better rates than others. I was quoted up to USD486 p/n, but still managed to find the one we booked that comes out to USD356 p/n.
Our April 12 anniversary has always worked out well with the drop in prices at the Couples Jamaican Resorts in early April. Just got back a few days ago. We wanted to book Couples Barbados for 2014 and found their prices don't drop there until April 28. I guess we are taking our vacation later as there is a $163 savings per night for the Junior Ocean Suite for those who can wait. We plan to stay 8 nights so that is a big difference, even with the seventh night free deal. I see that CSA prices don't drop next year until April 19. Having been married at Couples we like to go on our anniversary but that may be a thing of the past. CSA (our favorite) drops $200 per night on the Premier BFS rooms we like to rent!
I book my own airfare using a mix of airmiles and cash. I did not use him but have you tried David Parker at Allthewaytravel as they seem to get preferential rates?
